Pre-64 Model 70 Standard Grade .375 H&H Magnum converted to left-hand bolt operation. Lon Paul rebarreled with original Winchester 25-inch factory barrel after Craig bought this rifle in 1982 and also added a 4-blade island express rear sight (with the fixed leaf regulated and the 3 folders left green). Jack Lott of .458 Lott fame added the Sako bolt stop/release. Craig hunted with and wrote about this rifle extensively for many years, using it to take his best lion, first Lord Derby eland and many other species, Additional features include a jeweled bolt body/extractor/follower. The thumb safety and ejection remains oriented to the right. A Leupold Vari-X III 1.5-5X scope with Heavy Duplex reticle is secured in Talley rings and bases. Overall condition reflects significant hunting use as might be expected, with the stock absent about 40% of its finish and the barrel down about the same. Purchaser will receive a letter from Craig documenting the purchase and also field photos if desired. Additional photos of the rifle are available by request.
